I saw and was SO happy. I was visiting the park today for the last day before blockouts and was treated to this. What a great show.

Nope. I'm not affiliated with The DIS or any online blog/vlog. Just posting their vids here.

Were you the one I said to what are you filming for

They are running both shows a night now.

We better be getting that Star Wars show once Jingle Bell Jingle BLEH is over. The Star Wars show is easily one of the best fireworks/projection shows Disney has put on in a while.

They may do the Star Wars overlay on RnR. For some reason(legal with Aerosmith maybe?) it never gets promoted in advance

Whelp, guess I'll be able to say I've been there done it.

asianwayDec 06, 2017

No, its not that big a difference. Waste of money for most

Wondering if someone has some insight. I have tix to the December 16th Galactic nights event at HS. Base on what I am seeing on the site, with the exception of the discussion panel, Warwick Davis, a potentially smaller crowd size, and a few galaxy photo ops, I am seeing the value. At least not a $130.00 difference in what is being offered and what is available during regular park hours. Do they at least give out treats like they do at Not so scary? Am I way off base? Am I missing something big? I know it is an exclusive experience and being a star wars nerd, I'm going to participate....but still not seeing a big diff. Thanks in advance....
